Reunions, relocations, revisions, and more good news/bad news

Silent Comedy, Stick Figure, Dewey Defeats Truman, Avenue Army, Schizophonics

Silent Comedy
Silent Comedy

Founded by brothers Joshua and Jeremiah Zimmerman, the Silent Comedy began as sort of an old-timey theatrical troupe. Although the band recently announced that they had to cancel one leg of their July tour, they have a new single out this month called “Vigilante.” “We have more new shows being added and announced shortly,” says the band. “More to come on the good and the bad, so please bear with us.”

Stick Figure

Stick Figure earned national attention when their 2012 album Burial Ground hit number one on the Billboard reggae chart. Their live shows became known for featuring Cocoa the Tour Dog, an Australian Shepard with nearly 80,000 Instagram followers. The band has a new video for their track “Way of Life,” featuring fellow local beach rockers Slightly Stoopid.

Dewey Defeats Truman

Dewey Defeats Truman made their debut in 2001 with the misleadingly titled B-Sides, Rarities and Out-Takes, following up in 2002 with their Road to Nowhere Maps EP before disbanding. They ended a 15-year hiatus in 2018 by playing anniversary shows for 91X and The Casbah. All the original members have reunited to record The Way You Shatter EP, which will be released in a clear vinyl 12-inch edition.

Avenue Army

Avenue Army relocated from Saint Paul, MN to San Diego specifically because they felt that their sound would fit nicely in Southern California and because they strongly felt that this was the place to build a better foundation for their music and fanbase,” says singer-songwriter Max Bergstr. Now with a revised lineup featuring a new drummer, a single just dropped for their track “Ordinary Names.”

Schizophonics

Founded in 2009, the Schizophonics spent part of last year on a rollicking tour of New Zealand with bassist Takumi McIntyre (formerly of the Cavemen). The garage soul trio’s upcoming album, Hoof It, was recorded by Dean Reis (Plosivs, Rocket From The Crypt) at Singing Serpent studio and mixed by Steve Kaye at Sun King Studios. Due September 2 via Pig Baby Records, it’s so far preceded by a single for “Desert Girl.” The support tour wraps up at the Casbah on September 23.
